Etihad Airways is set to host its largest-ever recruitment drive down under. The airline is seeking passionate, hardworking and friendly individuals to join its world-leading cabin crew.

Taking place in tandem with a global search across 30 cities worldwide, the recruitment drive will see the airline expand its 4,800-strong cabin crew to support operational growth including the arrival of a next-generation fleet later this year.

This is an incredible opportunity to join a world-leading airline, travel the world and enjoy extensive industry perks.

“Being a cabin crew member allows you to explore different parts of the world you wouldn’t normally see; not many careers entail travelling the world as part of your day job. We’re anticipating not only great interest but great talent here in Australia.”

Linda Celestino, Etihad Airways’ Vice President Guest Service and Delivery

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend one of the four recruitment days in Brisbane (5, 6 March), Perth (8, 9 March), Melbourne (12, 13 May) and Sydney (14, 15 May).

“We will be inviting 120 of the strongest applicants who can demonstrate they have the energy, motivation and professional manner to join us at the Australian recruitment roadshow. As someone who began her career in aviation as a cabin crew member 35 years ago, I am delighted to be returning to Australia in search of the next generation of talent.”
